I’m about to collect my Taycan turbo.
It comes with home charging cable for blue industrial connector at 16A.
The battery is supposed to never discharge more than 20%. For charging it is recommended to not charge more than 85% of the total capacity.
Respecting the above mentioned limits, we only need to charge 60.7 kwh. Doing this at 230 VAC and 16A will take 16.5 hours.
Any advice how to speed this up?
The PMCC unit can handle up to 9.6 kw. This mean I could increase the charging current up to 41 A.
My garage can handle 32A. Could I just made my self a cable between the mains outlet in the garage and the PMCC unit that can handle 32 A?
How much current can handle the cable between the PCMM unit and the car?
Thanks in advance for any advice.

Here in the US our system is different. I do believe that if you go to your Porsche dealer they can sell you a cable for the higher current capacity, although you will need to upgrade the receptacle and likely the wiring for it as well.

If you use the industrial blue plug, it should mean that goes with ‘three phase’ current. With this and 16A I recharge mine approx 8kwh /hour - thus full charge overnight. Regards from Luxembourg
